OmniOpera Omnia ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
A huge amount of work from Omni – a cool Polish trio who work in some great 80s electronic mode – maybe a bit warmer than material from the cold wave underground of the time, but also not really a pop group either – as the group is mostly instrumental throughout! There's an unusual use of cello, too – an instrument that makes a nice contrast to the heavy synths in both the melodies and rhythms – sometimes augmented by guest instrumentation, and then with a few bits of vocals on some of the group's later tracks – although the core approach is really a mix of synth, cello, and "noises" throughout. The 2CD set features the group's classic Omni album, the later-released set of tracks as Mermaids, and other unissued studio sessions and TV music too – all in an overstuffed set of tracks with detailed notes in English and Polish!

Void PedalOmni Colour ... LP
Fieldwerk, 2011. Very Good+ ... $18.99 21.99
Abstract hip hop beatcraft from the Chi's Fieldwerk label – an operation that's delivered one excellent, instrumentals centered effort after another to date – and Void Pedal, aka Chicago producer Chad Schnieder, delivers another true gem for the label! Void Pedal works from familiar elements – funky sampled drum breaks, washes of analog synth, and other hypnotic particles – but he delivers a unique vibe of which we can't easily pinpoint direct influences. That's always a good thing. Unique yet accessible instrumentals we'd love to see get some deserved props. Titles include "A Place In The Sun", "Rainbow God", "Parachute", "Baldwin", "Spiral Ease", "Let It Fall", "Choke You", "Ace Tone", "Z" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Jean CarneCloser Than Close ... LP
Mirage/Omni, 1986. Sealed ... $6.99 9.99
Quite a different sound than Jean's Philly International recordings – although certainly a logical extension – and it's a sweeter than sweet set from the mid 80s that in turns both celebrates and transcends the production style of the era! Overall, Closer Than Close is a smooth batch of mellow modern soul, almost in a Phyllis Hyman mode, and with less of the free easy jazz touches of Jean's earlier recordings. Grover Washington produced most of the record, an he really does add a bit of jazz into the mix – but the standout element is Jean's vocals, which seem to have expanded their range along with the addition of the "e" to her last name! Titles include "Lucky Charm", "Closer than Close", "Everything Must Change", "Sexy Eyes", "It Must Be Love", and a solid remake of "Break Up To Make Up". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHillbillies In Hell – Country Music's Tormented Testament – 1952 to 1974 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $19.99
A hell of a cool little set – one that begins with obscure country songs about drug use, then moves onto a whole host of songs with themes of suicide, insanity, damnation, and redemption! The music is every bit as great as you'd guess from the title and cover – and the folks at Omni, who already do an amazing job with obscure country reissues, really knock it out of the park with this one – by pulling together two decades' worth of unusual tracks from the indie underground – all supported by great notes as well. The package is a heady journey through the underbelly of country – sounds you'd never hear on the charts – and titles include "Suicide" by Louie Innis, "Satan's Chauffeur" by Jimmy Minor, "Marijuana The Devil Flower" by Johnny Price, "LSD" by Wendell Austin, "The Needle" by Harry Snyder, "California Hippie Murders" by Red River Dave, "Demon Of Jealousy" by Jesse Bruce, "The Devil Was Laughing At Me" by Jimmy Newman, "Psycho" by Eddie Noack, "Hell Train" by Billy Strange, "Race With The Devil" by Johnny David, and "Fourteen Stories Down" by Don Bailey. This deluxe reissue includes 2 bonus tracks – "Hades Highway" by Len Barrow and "Hellbound Train" by Billy Flood. CD

VariousHillbillies In Hell – Tribulations – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Tortured souls and troubled hearts – served up here in a dark set of narratives from the classic years of country music! As with previous volumes in this excellent series, the package goes way beyond the big hits, to turn up lots of great songs from the shadowy corners of country – songs about bad deeds and poor choices – handled by a variety of different singers who really keep things interesting! There's way more love of the music here than the sense of kitsch you might expect from the cover – and although you might first find the songs appealing from a gimmicky perspective, we can bet that you'll be getting the message before long. Titles include "Dead Man's Cave" by Bobby Griggs, "Marbone Swamp" by Bill Browning & The Dark Hollow Boys, "Endless Sleep" by Hank Williams Jr, "There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by Bobby Grove, "Dark Day In Dallas" by Tex Ritter, "Bury Me Face Down" by Cowboy Copas, "No Hiding Place" by Sunshine Boys Quartet, "Satan's Jeweled Crown" by The Louvin Brothers, and "East Dallas Dagger" by Durwood Daily. (Note: most of the contents are the same as the LP 777 in the series – but the CD has 32 titles in all!) CD

✨✧ VariousHillbillies In Hell – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 – The Resurrection ... CD
Omni/Iron Mountain Analog Research (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This great series just keeps on getting better and better – as the hillbillies rise from hell, and take their message into the musical mainstream! Previous volumes have dealt with themes of sin and redemption in country music – and this time around, the scope seems pushed even farther – partly because the music extends into the 70s, but also because the stylistic blend is even more amazing – as bigger-name singers mix with obscure artists, and major productions mingle with rare tracks from the indie world. The album's overflowing with great work – along with the great notes of other volumes too – and titles include "The World Is A Monster" by Doug Tubb, "Six Pallbearers" by Bob Gallion, "Devil Train" by Johnny Doe, "God Please Protect America" by Seymore Weed, "Hellbound Train" by The Lumberjack with The Northwood Singers, "Room 333" by Ben Wasson & The Hardtimes, "Mammoth Cave Secret" by Charlie Stewart, "Daddy's Sick Again" by Arkey Blue, "Wrestlin With Satan" by Zero Jones, "Satan Must Get Along Without Me" by The Knight Brothers, "There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by GM Farley & The Foggy River Boys, and "Hillbilly Hades" by Texas Bill Strength.

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavenly voices, turning towards hell – in a host of rare country music tracks that deal with the devil and the world down under! The set's the third volume in this wonderful series, and may well be the deepest-digging so far – and stands as a demonstration that, if you're going to have the spirit of redemption in your music, you've also got to make room for damnation as well! Some of the artists here might be familiar, but there's also a fair bit of very rare tracks too (and you can trust us on that – as we're hillbilly hounds ourselves!) As before, there's some great track by track notes that illuminate the music – alongside titles that include "Satan's Child" by Anita Carter, "Six Rounds Of Love & Hate" by Autry Inman, "Devil's Slate" by Johnny Tyler, "Ten O'Clock Train" by Harold Lee, "I'm Going Down For The Third Time" by Eddie Snell & His Midwestern Aces, "Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by Ralph Hart, "Suicide Blues" by Stringbean, "Bang Bang You're Dead" by Steve Bledsoe, "Graveyard Dance" by Ray Sanders, and "The Neon & The Rain" by Freddie Hart.

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from a series that never gets old – and which, if anything, seems to keep digging deeper and deeper with each new volume! If you know that, as the Louvin Brothers tell us, Satan Is Real – then you'll find plenty to spook your soul here – and we don't just mean the creepy cover! As with previous volumes, the tracks are a superbly-selected batch of songs from the farther reaches of country music – dealing with themes of temptation and salvation, awash with all the evils of mankind that weren't washed away in the pulpit! Titles include "Satan's Wife" by Jesse Floyd, "Turn Your Radio On" by The Statemen Quartet, "It's Nothing To Me" by Loy Clingman, "The Devil" by Ronnie Wolfe, "Satan's Suitcase" by Robert Zehm, "Devil Get Away From Me": by Roy & Georgia & The So & Sos, "Nightmare" by Jack Turner, Ghost Of A Honky Tonk Slave" by Cowbowy Howard Vokes, "On The Cross" by Margie Singleton, "Ghost Town" by Billy Massey, "Singing Shouting Praying" by Bill & Opal Carter with The Country Gents, "Fourth Man" by Reverend Tully McCoy, and "Please Devil" by Bobby Griggs.

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Deep deep country music, from the glory days of the genres – the kind of tracks that start in the territory of the Louvin Brothers' Satan Is Real, then take off into a whole host of different themes based on sinning, saving, and redemption! The vibe here is every bit as great as the previous volumes in the series – and as the compilations have gone on, they've only gotten more surprising – really moving past the obvious cuts for such a collection, and pulling together some real gems from the farther reaches of postwar country music! CD features 30 tracks in all – and titles include "Oh Death" by John Reedy & The Stone Mountain Trio, "Fire's A Coming" by Swanee River Boys, "Death's Black Train" by AL Phipps Family, "Heaven Bound Train" by Lewis Family, "Jesus Is On My Side" by Richard Miller, "A Wonderful Time Up There" by Wally Fowler & The Oak Ridge Quartet, "The Story Of The Street Girl" by Lonnie Glosson, "Filthy Sea Of Sin" by Ernest Carter, and "Are You Insured Beyond The Grave" by Little Jimmy Dickens.

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2021. New Copy ... $6.99
Fiercely spiritual music from the great David Boykin – exactly the kind of record that puts him in a special sort of legacy that goes back to the glory days of the 70s! Boykin's always had this sort of quality in his music, but it feels as if in recent years, he's gotten even more righteous and powerful – definitely the case here, as he rises to the skies on tenor – blowing in a group that features Jim Baker on piano, Alex Wing on bass, and Isaiah Spencer on drums – plus a trio of female singers who bring this really magical quality to the whole thing – maybe a more compact version of the Eddie Gale experiments on Blue Note at the start of the 70s! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Empowerment", "Omni-Intervallic", and "Progenitor". CD

Sun RaOmniverse (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Saturn/Modern Harmonic, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 26.99
A really great record, and one that was recorded by a smaller version of the Arkestra than usual – done in this spiritual style that's almost a bit like some of the Horo Records material that Sun Ra had recorded just a short time before! There's an intimacy here that's wonderful – and the group features Ra on piano, John Gilmore on tenor, Hayes Burnette on bass, and Samarai Celestial on drums – and one track also features added work from Charles Davis on baritone and Michael Ray on trumpet. The album's a lot more inside than some of the freer work by Ra during the 70s – and we mean that in a great way – and there's also less of the full ensemble chanting that you'd hear on some of the other spiritual sessions from the 70s by the Arkestra. All of these aspects add up to make for a wonderfully special set from Ra and some of his key players – served up on titles that include "The Place Of Five Points", "Omniverse", "Visitant Of The Ninth Ultimate", and "Dark Lights In A White Forest". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Yard (Germany), 1994/2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible book on Sun Ra & The Arkestra – one that's got all the beauty and heft of one of his rare albums on the Saturn Records label! This is the second edition of Omniverse (the first went out of print almost 20 years ago, and now goes for fabulous sums) – and it's even bigger than the first, with a stunning amount of words, notes, photos, artwork, and images of vintage records – all pulled together to represent the "omniverse" promised in the title! The book begins with a long history on Ra and his music, along with all the complicated business practices that accompanied it – then goes on to include pages and pages of wonderful photos, by Val Wilmer and author Hartmut Geerken – alongside other writings on Ra's music by Chris Cutler, Salah Ragab, Robert Campbell, Amiri Baraka, and others – before then diving into a huge discography on Ra-related recordings – with images on pre-Saturn singles and 78s, releases on Saturn and other labels, and lots more session information too – then ending with a huge amount of images of vintage record covers and other Ra releases, plus rare handbills as well. The whole thing is as big as the biggest coffee table books you'll find – but a lot more interesting overall – and the presentation is top-shelf all the way through! Expensive, but totally worth it even if you've only got a minor interest in Sun Ra – over 300 pages, full color, and lavishly printed. Book

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing relic of a bygone age – a special limited CD that was done in collaboration with the long-lost Eccentric Soul Omnibus funky 45 collection from Numero! The original package is pictured on the front – a very limited box of 7" singles that featured tracks were then unique to the set – rare soul and funk gems that had not appeared on other Numero compilations or 45s – presented as a unique collection that continues Numero's tireless digging of the American soul underground of the 60s and 70s. This CD set brings together 22 of those rare nuggets – and for a lot less than the $250 price tag of the 7" box – a nice helping of rare funky soul that includes "Strike" by Union, "Together (part 2)" by Elements Of Peace, "Questions" by Pat Stallworth, "This Time" by Family Connection, "Hands On A Golden Key" by Stone Creations, "What It Is" by Curtis Liggins Indications, "Man Oh Man" by Walter & The Admerations, "Look Around" by Two Plus Two, "A Child Is Born" by Aggregations, "You Make Me Nothing" by Energetics, "The Stretch" by 13th Amendment, "Everyday" by Inbassador, "Can I Say It Again" by Soul Walkers, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Party Time" by Black Soul Express, "Patience" by Rokk, and "Give Me One More Chance" by Procedures.

Chris BellI Am The Cosmos (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ardent/Omnivore, Mid 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $18.99
The legendary lost masterpiece of Chris Bell – an "album" that was only pulled together many years after his tragic early death, as a solo revelation of the genius that Bell had brought to the first album by Big Star! The tracks are incredible – with plenty to love if you love Big Star, but also maybe a more confident sort of presentation – as if, with any strange turn of psyche, Bell would have been able to rise into 70s pop stardom – had so many forces not conspired against him. Even before the release of the material in the early 90s, the sounds within seemed to have inspire some of the best on the forefront of creative underground work in the 80s – and from the perspective of the 21st Century, the whole thing's one of those records that now feels as if it's been perfectly placed in the legacy it deserves – every bit as magical now as when it was recorded. Titles include the classic "You & Your Sister", plus "Look Up", "I Got Kinda Lost", "There Was A Light", "Fight At The Table", "Make A Scene", "Better Save Yourself", "Speed Of Sound", and "I Am The Cosmos". This huge 35-track, 2CD package features far more material than any previous issue – really reviving the lost recorded legacy of Chris Bell with a lot of unreleased work, and some other rare music too. In addition to a lot of unusual variations and mixes of album tracks, the set includes the rare collaborations "In My Darkest Hour", "So Long Baby", and "Stay With Me" – all wrapped up in a big set with copious notes on Bell and his music.

Matt BerryGather Up (4CD set) ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2010s. New Copy 4CD ... $31.99 34.99
A great celebration of the music of Matt Berry – a figure who's known to most for his comedic work on screen, but who also turns out to be a hell of a singer/songwriter in his own right! Matt's music is completely different from his acting – often very open and personal, but not without an occasional moment of wit – as the singer works with a host of vintage keyboards the often form the core of his music, graced with guitar and more familiar instrumentation too. This set brings together some of Barry's best moments over his recording career for the Acid Jazz label – with titles that include "World In Action", "Summer Sun", "Take A Bow", "Something In My Eye", "say It Again", "Music For Insomniacs (part 4)", "Solstice", "Obsessed & So Obscure", "The Innkeeper's Song (live)", "October Sun", "Badger's Wake", "Snuff Box Theme", and "Middle Of The East". CD2 features many more rarities and unreleased tracks! CD3 features more Phantom First tracks that include "Covered In Clowns", "You Danced All Night", "A Shot Rang Out In The Forest", "Take A Bow", "The Preacher's House", "I'm Going", "Peter Cleopatra & The Windmill", and "Where's My Love".

Bobby ColePoint Of View (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Concentric/Omnivore, 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to emerge as a serious vocalist with a rich talent for penning interesting and witty little tunes. The album's got Bobby singing in a style that's halfway between Matt Dennis and Mark Murphy – with the sophisticated talents of both in place, and perhaps a bit of the wit of Bob Dorough or Roy Kral. The original album features Bobby on piano and vocals, with only bass and drums behind him – and titles include "You Can't Build A Life On A Look", "Heat", "You Could Hear A Pin Drop", "Change Of Scene", "A Perfect Day", "Elegy For Eve", and "Status Quo". CD features 13 unissued bonus tracks too – different than the ones that were on the previous Japanese CD release – great titles with a similar vibe, including "Checkerboard Life", "Drink This Cup", "Never Ask The Hour", "A Toast", and "When She Was In Love With Me".

Roger FakhrFine Anyway ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Beautiful sounds from Roger Fahkr – a Lebanese singer/songwriter who recorded most of this music in the late 70s – but with a sound and style that's every bit as compelling as western talents from the earlier part of the decade! The tunes often begin with voice and acoustic guitar, but usually bring in a bit of keyboards or other elements to expand things slightly, but all while keeping the moody quality of Roger's English-language vocals intact – all with a quality that could easily have this work standing next to some of our favorite recordings by artists like Rodriguez, Terry Callier, or Alzo & Udine! There's an inexplicable quality to all of these cuts – a uniqueness that really lives up to our comparison with those other greats – and the whole pacakge is a huge discovery of an artist who might have been a huge global force, had he had the chance back in the 70s. Titles include "Sad Sad Songs", "My Baby She Is As Down As I Am", "Express Line", "Insomnia Blue", "Lady Rain", "Everybody Is Going Home", "Sitting In The Sun", "The Wizard", "Trip Thru Time", "Gone Away Again", and "Had To Come Back Wet".

Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)Retrospect In Retirement of Delay – The Solo Recordings ... CD
Omnivore, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99 27.99
Stunning solo piano work from legendary Philly musician Hasaan – best known for his one Atlantic session with Max Roach, but sounding completely different here on his own! From the very first note of the set, you know that you're in the company of a committed modernist, of the same generation as Herbie Nichols and Elmo Hope – a player with an equally unique, individual conception, and an ability to work a very familiar instrument in all these really unusual ways – often with a quality that makes you feel as if Hasaan is about to step outside and improvise more freely, but always swinging back with an inherent sense of rhythm that's wonderful. The set features both original tunes and reworked standards, pulled from a variety of different tapes recorded in both Philly and New York in the mid 60s – superbly brought back to life here, with a double-length set of selections that include "Off My Back Jack", "Off Minor", "Atlantic Ones", "Mean To Me", "True Train", "Untitled Ballad", "Extemporaneous Prose Poem", "Besame Mucho", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Arabic Song".

First off, let us say that singer Linda Hoover is pretty great herself, and contributes some good original material to the record – but the whole thing really soars with more original tunes from Becker & Fagan, who also did the arrangements and played on the record, which was produced by Gary Katz, who'd soon help the duo rise to fame as Steely Dan! Some moments of the record are more acoustic, but the songwriting is super-smart, warmed up with keyboards from Fagan, and peppered with early work on guitar from Skunk Baxter too. The great jazzman Jerome Richardson also plays a bit of tenor, too – and titles include a great version of "Roaring Of The Lamb", plus "In A Station", "Jones", "Mama Tears", "Roll Back The Meaning", "Turn My Friend Away", and "Autumns".

✨✧ I Am (Isaiah Collier & Michael Shekwoaga Ode)Beyond (with poster) ... LP
Division 81, 2022. New Copy 2LP ... $32.99 36.99
This may well be the record that gets everyone to sit up and take notice of the genius of saxophonist Isaiah Collier – as the set's got a far-reaching quality that's right up there with some of the most righteous jazz albums of the 70s, not to mention some of the bigger names of today's spiritual underground! The set features Collier in duets with percussionist Michael Shekwoaga Ode – on very long tracks that are free and open, but never too far out to have a sense of soul – maybe somewhere in the territory of the John Coltrane duets with Rashied Ali, but also embracing all the change that's taken place since then – including the excellent pairing of David Murray and Kahil El Zabar! Yet there's a sonic intensity here that's also very different – signaled on the first track, which features added work on gongs and bowls from Jimmy Chan – then carried throughout the album as Collier blows us away with the many voices he's able to channel – as is Ode, as the pair work together with a tremendous sense of new energy from tune to tune. The album's not just two confident cats pulling out their standard sounds for a pairing – and instead, the record's really got this sense of two fellow travelers exploring the farther reaches together – both great, but with Collier rising to a level that should soon have him mentioned in the same breath as musicians like David S Ware or Kamasi Washington – even though he might now be fresher than both. Titles include "Confessions Of The Heart", "Suns Of Mercury", "The Vessel Speaks", "Omniscient", "Hymn Love Beyond Compare", and "Bend Of The Universe". LP, Vinyl record album

Yo Yo Smuggler, 2011. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Chicago hip hop jazz veterans J Davis Trio return with a solid EP – laid down with an impressive roster of guest musicians from the Chi community – led by the classic hip hop learned rhymes of Julio Davis! The group is as fresh as ever, with rhymes, keys and vibes by Davis – the rhymes reminiscent of Chali 2na and that school of throwback-styled charismatic flow – and vibes that add a bit of Roy Ayers-y jazz funk. Never strictly a trio, the group and extended family & friends on this set includes bassis Dave Smith, trumpet player Dave Winer, drums by San Sharp, sax by Chris Greene, congas by Ryan Murphy, violin by Inger Carle and others. The featured guest collaborators include vibes player Joe Sonnefeldt, guitarist, singer and on this set, Latin rapper Carlos Ortega, Chicago musical omnivore Nick Tremulis on electric guitar, and flute player Paul Mertens. Includes "The Answer" with Joe Sonnefeldt, "Girl, Intoxicating" with Carlos Ortega, "The Firm Swing" with Nick Tremulis and "The Bell Curve" with Paul Mertens. CD

Omnivore, 1974. New Copy 3CD ... $30.99 31.99
An incredible later pairing of these two giants from the modern jazz scene of the 50s – brought together in the 70s for this searing extended club performance! Both Art Pepper's alto and Warne Marsh's tenor had changed a lot since the early years, but in the best way possible – as both musicians here have a heck of a lot of bite, really break out in longform solos, and really push themselves past the more composed sound of their youth! The record also captures Pepper right at that moment when his star was beginning to rise as a leader and soloist – and the vibe here is nicely less structured than on some of his albums from a few years later – given a nice raw edge from the trio of Mark Levine on piano, John Heard on bass, and Lew Malin on drums! This is way more than just another Art Pepper live date – a truly special set, with long takes on "All The Things You Are", "Yardbird Suite", "Good Bait", "What's New", "Donna Lee", "Walkin", "Round Midnight", "Broadway", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Over The Rainbow", and "Rhythm A Ning".

Sure Fire Soul EnsembleStep Down ... LP
Colemine, 2022. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Deeply funky work from the Sure Fire Soul Ensemble – one of those special groups that always seems to bring a little something extra to their work – not just a straight copy of old school funk instrumental styles, but instead a rich, fresh approach that's very much their own! The sound is lean, but there's also this sort of majesty in the music – and understated quality that comes from the careful application of horns next to the funky elements at the core – almost with the flavoring that you'd hear in an older Ethio Funk record, but without any East African flavors either. The approach is a bit hard to describe, but it grabs you right away, and makes you know you're listening to something that's really a cut above – on titles that include "Omnificent", "Time To Rebuild", "Step Down", "High Times", "Gandys", "In Common", "Love Age", and "Thomas The Cat".

Capitol/Omnivore, 1965/1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Benchmark Bakersfield honky tonk sounds from The Buckaroos – sans Buck Owens – on a couple of classic-level instrumentals sets for Capitol! Led buy guitarist, and when duty calls, fiddle player Don Rich – the band covers the biggest hits they recorded and performed over the years behind leader Buck on The Buck Owens Song Book set – a faithful take on their own electric twang style – in an instrumental setting. The electric guitars serve nicely in place of the lead vocals on the uber-classics "I've Got A Tiger By The The Tail", "Act Naturally", "My Heart Skips A Beat", "Together Again", "I Don't Care (Just As Long As You Love Me)" and more. The Buckaroos take a different approach and show some stylistic range on their covers of fellow Bakersfield veteran Merle Haggard – with some groovy organ, banjo, mandolin and other alternate instrumentation in the mix – on top of their legendary style of electric twang – with some occasional chorus vocals for an even deeper twist. Includes covers of Hag classics "Daddy Frank (The Guitar Man)", "Hungry Eyes", "Swinging Doors", "Mama Tried" and more. Hats off to Omnivore for digging deep and pulling together 2 overlooked albums by one of the greatest backing bands in country music history! CD

✨✧ Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)Metaphysics – The Lost Atlantic Album ... CD
Atlantic/Omnivore, 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost jazz treasure from one of the most enigmatic pianists of the 60s – the legendary Hasaan, who recorded famously with Max Roach on Atlantic Records, but who also left behind this rare session that's never seen the light of day until now! Hasaan hails from Philly, where he was a player who'd made huge waves in that city, with a technique that rivaled the modernism of Elmo Hope or Herbie Nichols – but a musician who rarely ever got exposure outside of the city, which is what makes this album so essential! Even more essential is the fact that the set features work from a very young Odean Pope on tenor – really sounding tremendous here next to Hasaan – maybe the Charlie Rouse to his Thelonious Monk, although both musicians work in territory that's even more mindblowing! All titles here are originals by Ali, filled with all these amazing changes and angles – driven forth even more strongly by the work of Art Davis on bass and Kali Madi on drums – on tunes that include "True Train", "Richard May Love Give Powell", "Atlantic Ones", "Viceroy", "El Hasaan", "Epitome", and "Metaphysics". Album also features three shorter alternates of titles on the record. CD

✨✧ Roger FakhrFine Anyway ... LP
Habibi Funk (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Roger Fahkr – a Lebanese singer/songwriter who recorded most of this music in the late 70s – but with a sound and style that's every bit as compelling as western talents from the earlier part of the decade! The tunes often begin with voice and acoustic guitar, but usually bring in a bit of keyboards or other elements to expand things slightly, but all while keeping the moody quality of Roger's English-language vocals intact – all with a quality that could easily have this work standing next to some of our favorite recordings by artists like Rodriguez, Terry Callier, or Alzo & Udine! There's an inexplicable quality to all of these cuts – a uniqueness that really lives up to our comparison with those other greats – and the whole pacakge is a huge discovery of an artist who might have been a huge global force, had he had the chance back in the 70s. Titles include "Sad Sad Songs", "My Baby She Is As Down As I Am", "Express Line", "Insomnia Blue", "Lady Rain", "Everybody Is Going Home", "Sitting In The Sun", "The Wizard", "Trip Thru Time", "Gone Away Again", and "Had To Come Back Wet".

✨✧ MaloLatin Bugaloo – Warner Brothers Singles ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Legendary Latin Soul & funk from Malo – all the Bay Area combo's original singles for Warner in the early 70s, A- & B-sides, together for the first time – focusing on the group at it's fastest-paced and most exhilarating! Malo's sweet blend of Latin, jazz, funk, and rock really kind of pre-figured the California Latin Soul sound to come throughout the rest of the decade – with Latin rhythms and percussion inspired by their roots as well as the New York combos of the late 60s, with sunny harmonies and soulful horns in more of a west coast style – and bringing in funkier and jazzier grooves along the way. They had a penchant for long jams on the LPs, so the single versions were inevitably edited down, which is actually a great, alternate way to hear these classic jams in their most insistent essences. Comes with a nice little booklet, too, with notes and an interview with Jorge Santana. Includes "Suavecito", "Nena", "Cafe", 'Peace", "Just Say Goodbye", "Pana", "I'm For Real", "Oye Mama", "Latin Bugaloo", "Midnight Thoughts", "I Don't Know", "Merengue", "Love Will Survive" and "Think About Love".

Wonderfully groovy work from Trini Lopez – the singer/guitarist who cut some great albums for Reprise Records in the 60s, but who seemed to sound even groovier in the space of a 7" single! This set brings together most of Trini's 45s for Reprise, most on CD for the first time ever – and together, the cuts are a long-overdue tribute to the pop genius that Lopez offered up in the 60s – a sound that was initially served up in a rocking small combo mode, but took in all these great flights into sunshine pop, Latin soul, and other cool styles that are all served up on this very cool collection! 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Made In Paris", "Pretty Little Girl, "Up To Now", "The Bramble Bush", "You Make My Day", "Five O'Clock World", "Love Story", "Master Jack", "Something Tells Me", "There Was A Crooked Man", "Let's Think About Living", "Mexican Medicine Man", "Regresa A Mi", and "Let It Be Known".

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiComplete Warner Brothers/Seven Arts Recordings (Oh Good Grief/Eclectic/Alma-Ville/bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A trio of wonderful records – plus rare bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Oh Good Grief – one of the coolest, grooviest albums that pianist Vince Guaraldi ever recorded – a set that's got the same Peanuts theme as his earlier dates for Fantasy Records, but which also features some sweet electric touches that only make things even better than before! In addition to his warmly vamping piano, with all those lyrical touches we love so much, Vince is playing an electric harpsichord too – which makes for some very groovy moments – in a cool quartet that features guitar from Eddie Duran, bass from Stanley Gilbert, and drums from the great Carl Burnett! All tunes are Peanut-themed – the music that Guaraldi wrote for the TV specials – but they're sometimes taken at a looser style that's even jazzier overall – as you'll hear on the classic "Linus & Lucy", plus "Red Baron", "Peppermint Patty", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", and "Rain Rain Go Away". The Eclectic Vince Guaraldi nicely expands Vince's sound of earlier years – by taking his lyrical piano groove and adding in a bit of electric harpsichord – plus slightly larger arrangements that feature a bit of electric bass, guitar, and just the right light touches of strings. The resulting sound is wonderful – as deeply reflective as some of Vince's better-known work, but with some cool late 60s touches that really give the album a fresh kind of feel. And heck, Vince even sings on 2 Tim Hardin tracks – "Black Sheep Boy" and "Reason To Believe" – using a great raspy style of vocals that we didn't even know he had! Other titles include a great electric version of "The Beat Goes On", plus cool originals "Nobody Else", "Coffee and Doe-Nuts", and "Lucifer's Lady". Alma-Ville was cut during Vince's late 60s hipster phase – and it combines work on piano with a bit of electric playing, plus hip LA arrangements that include drums by Dom Um Romao, guitar by Herb Ellis, and added percussion by Rubens Bassini. Tracks are mostly originals – short groovers and sing-song numbers, a lot cooler than some of Vince's earlier work – all dancing along in a sweetly breezy groove that makes for a heck of a delightful little album! Titles include "Rio From The Air", "Cristo Redentor", "Uno Y Uno", "Detained In San Ysidro", "Jambos", "Alma Ville", and "The Masked Marvel". 2CD set features 4 bonus tracks – "Oh Happy Day", "The Sharecropper's Daughter", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose (take 15)", and 'The BEat Goes On (alt take 14)".

The sound is nice and stark – almost the spareness of post-punk work, but with more mid 80s production that creates more darkness, and a very particular sound on the guitar and bass. Sandman is joined by future members of Morphine, and gets occasional horn help from members of Either/Orchestra – and titles include "Early Man", "Someone Stole My Shoes", "Insomniac", "Where's The Girl", "Livin With You", and "Rub It In".

The vibe here is very different than their funky 45 work of the early days, and their big crossover cuts at the start of the 80s – and there's a rock-solid quality that's a reminder that although we sometimes forget that some of the giants are still out there, away from the limelight, they often have skills and sharpness that are better than the younger artists they inspired! The leadoff cut "Pursuit Of Happiness" has a message and sense of history that's wonderfully uplifting – and other cuts include "The Weekend", "All To Myself", "Good Time", "Hold On", "Leave It On The Dancefloor", and "High".

Titles include "Nuki Suki", "The Prophet Of Peace", "Thomasine", "Second Line", and "It Ain't What You Do It's The Way How You Do It".

Killer new breed Gypsy music from Romania! Mahala Rai Band were rormed by some cohorts of the great Taraf de Haidouks, and combine wild village fiddling with manic brass music – Taraf de Haidouks meets Boban Markovic! The group plays original tunes in a traditional vein, but kit drummer Marian Dinu infuses the proceedings with a winning funky backbeat. Additionally, the record was mixed by German producer Shantel – a key figure in the emerging Balkan underground and a remixer for the Electric Gypsyland project – for maximum propulsion. The tunes sport great, barely contained vocals, and several tracks are enhanced by zigzagging cimbalom lines and furious accordion. This stuff seriously kicks. Tracks include "Mahalageasca", "Spoitoresa", "Romni Latci", "Gaida", and "Romano Dance". CD

In fact, the quality of Buck's work is often so strong, it's easy to miss – maybe in part because he was a rising star on the TV screen – although here, he and the group are still impeccable in terms of presentation – and also songwriting too, as almost every cut on the record is an original from Buck – save two from Bakersfield contemporaries Merle Haggard and Tommy Collins! Titles include "Hello Happiness Goodbye Loneliness", "If I Had Three Wishes", "Sally Mary & Jerry", "How Long Will My Baby Be Gone", "Leave Me Something To Remember You Buy", "Swinging Doors", "Girl On Super Pie Lane", and "The Heartaches Have Just Started".

Many tracks are relatively spare, and really give you a great chance to hear the special skills that Pastorius brought to his instrument – that level of soloing that was even more deft than most work on horns, and which pushed the instrument into really amazing territory.

The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, with very solid production and instrumentation throughout – a top-shelf effort that shows that even at this later date, a group like The Staples can still get some good sounds out of the studio. A few tracks are a bit mis-stepped, especially when Mavis steps out a bit too strongly in the lead – but overall, there's plenty of nice surprises on the record – and tracks include "Chica Boom", "Don't Burn Me", "Handwriting On The Wall", "Mystery Train", "I Want You To Dance", "Love Being Your Fool", "Showdown", "Unlock Your Mind", and "Leave It All Up To Love". CD also features a bonus single edit of "Chica Boom". CD

Omnivore, Mid 60s. New Copy 4LP ... Out Of Stock
Stunning solo piano work from legendary Philly musician Hasaan – best known for his one Atlantic session with Max Roach, but sounding completely different here on his own! From the very first note of the set, you know that you're in the company of a committed modernist, of the same generation as Herbie Nichols and Elmo Hope – a player with an equally unique, individual conception, and an ability to work a very familiar instrument in all these really unusual ways – often with a quality that makes you feel as if Hasaan is about to step outside and improvise more freely, but always swinging back with an inherent sense of rhythm that's wonderful. The set features both original tunes and reworked standards, pulled from a variety of different tapes recorded in both Philly and New York in the mid 60s – superbly brought back to life here, with a double-length set of selections that include "Off My Back Jack", "Off Minor", "Atlantic Ones", "Mean To Me", "True Train", "Untitled Ballad", "Extemporaneous Prose Poem", "Besame Mucho", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Arabic Song".
